Tiny Houses

Rob and I were in IKEA last week checking out one of their small, chic mock-apartments, where they make a fabulous, airy-feeling living space out of hopelessly tiny place. The one we were in was about 230 square feet and we discussed how much smaller they could possibly go. Possibly under 100 square feet? I said 70 square feet was impossible.

The people behind the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company have proven me wrong. Check out this house tour of founder Jay Shafer's house. At 96 square feet, it's not even the smallest one they offer. The tiniest of them is a minuscule 65 square feet!

It sounds scary, but looks pretty cozy to me. I don't think it would work out too well for more than two people, though. Could you do it?
